Hi guys,

I'm really new in this IPv6 thing... I really dont understand how to config my DNS for IPv6 and how it depends on TLD supporting glue records... dunno what glue records is.. been searching but havent found anything clear...

I would like to start with that clarification... what are glue records and which dns has to support them..

Thanks a lot


I've changed my name server to xname.org, as they appear to offer free ipv6 dns.  The changes seem to have propagated ok, and I can see a AAAA record for the ns2 name server.  Are my dns settings correct?  Will the test pass even though only one of the name servers is IPv6 enabled?

If you mean the Sage cert test, yes 1 is all you need. If it isn't working right away it might be a caching issue. If it isn't working after a few days, I might need to reload the caching NS.
